Hot Topic: Pedestrian Path – What’s New – September 2014

Residents have made municipal councillors aware of a safety issue for residents in the area of Hubert-Leduc, Françoise-Cuillerier and Jean-Talon streets wishing to walk to the Carrefour Notre-Dame and the library. Since the only pedestrian crossing is at the intersection of St-Joseph and Don-Quichotte boulevards, pedestrians must either walk to the intersection to cross safely or else cross at some point on St-Joseph Boulevard, where cars often travel at speeds greater than 60 km/h.

After visiting the location in July, the municipal council decided to build a pedestrian path along St-Joseph Boulevard, from Hubert-Leduc Street to Don-Quichotte Boulevard, so that area pedestrians, in particular children, can get to the Carrefour Notre-Dame and the library safely.

As well, since the speed of cars is another concern, the municipal council will take the necessary action to reduce the speed limit along that section of road from 60 km/h to 50 km/h.
